Been Thinking about Making Homemade Fabric Softener

Now that I'm a veteran-user of homemade laundry soap, I've been thinking about making my own fabric softener too.  Here's a link to an easy sounding concoction.  I just bought a bottle of softener so when it's about gone I'll whip up a batch of this. DH is worried that it would give him a vinegar-like smell.  Hmmm, you can scent it with essential oils though... Has anyone made this or a similar softener?  Let me know what you think.

Search Amazon.com for fabric softener


  1. That is very interesting but sounds like too much work for me, I have read somewhere that some folks put vinegar in those downy balls for fabric softener, so far I have not used any since making my own soap but if I found something that I did like I would give it a try, Im not sure about vinegar though :o)

  2. I make my own sofner :) and I love it

    1. My husband wasn't too happy with it. When he perspires, he smells like vinegar. :)
